While negotiating a freeway curve at 80+ I went over a tar snake that ran parallel to the direction of travel. I think there was a difference in the pavement height along the length of the snake. Anyway, the bike started to wallow pretty good and I was off the scale on the pucker factor. Got it all straightened out by backing off on throttle. The bike has about 42k on it with the stock shocks. I know that some of you are rolling your eyes about now as I have read on the forum that the stock shocks are toast anywhere from 24k to 40k. So my question is, would the wallow have happened regardless of shocks or do my stock shocks need to go? I am a heavy guy and like to ride the curves hard when I can so I wouldn't be surprised if the shocks are shot but for just riding along they seem just fine. Oh, and one other thing, the front bottomed out on chuckhole the other day when I was solo. Is that normal even with a good shock allowing for proper setting?
